Ajinkya Rahane strick an unbeaten 63 off 48 balls guiding Rising Pune Supergiants to a seven-wicket win over Delhi Daredevils | May 5, 2016
Delhi Daredevils needed quick wickets to defend 162, and though they created several chances, they couldn't hold on to enough of them | May 5, 2016
Rahane struck an unbeaten 63 off 48 balls as Rising Pune Supergiants chased a target of 163 against Delhi Daredevils at Feroz Shah Kotla | May 5, 2016
19.1 Mohammed Shami to AM Rahane, 4 runs, full, on the pads, clipped away crisply to the square leg boundary | May 5, 2016
19.1 Mohammed Shami to NLTC Perera, (no ball) 1 run, slower ball close to off stump, Perera slogs too early, miscues it in the air, wide of extra cover, and the fielder runs to his right, catches it, and looks up to see the umpire signal no-ball. Big no-ball too. | May 5, 2016
18.5 Imran Tahir to NLTC Perera, 6 runs, length ball on the stumps, and Perera clears his front leg and sends it soaring over deep midwicket | May 5, 2016
18.3 Imran Tahir to NLTC Perera, 6 runs, googly wide of off stump, and that's the perfect ball for a leggie to bowl to Perera, but what do you do when he fetches it from wide outside off and slogs it high and clean over long-on | May 5, 2016
18.1 Imran Tahir to MS Dhoni, out, what a catch that is! Dhoni slogged at this flattish length ball, didn't hit it too well, didn't hit it too badly, and it could have gone for six if Sam Billings, running to his right, had not leaped across to pluck it out of the air, above his head, and go tumbling to the ground and come up with the ball still stuck in his hands | May 5, 2016
17.4 Mohammed Shami to MS Dhoni, 6 runs, down the track, and that is a stunning hit. Gets to the pitch of it and uses his wrists to whip it over the long-on boundary and into the sightscreen | May 5, 2016
